Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 Acura RL Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 262008


  • 749 miles


Note: 2009 Acura not yet available on "pull down" menu- so I listed 2008.... entering divided highway on "cloverleaf" entry, approx 38 mph, approx 4/5 of curved entry driven, car (2009 Acura Rl) began to fishtail, removed foot from accelerator, problem got worse, braking and steering ineffectual, "sh" handling, crash avoidance systems precluding driver initiated attempts or allowing driver to bring car under control. Resulting in damage in collision with guard rail, front and rear. Manufacturer has performed "investigation" and carefully examined car/ downloaded computer "historic" info and says up to oem spec/ design. I say there is still a problem that needs to be addressed. I hope a recall is issued or changes made before serious injuries occur 2009 Acura
